NATHAN JEDIDIAH BEN ELIEZER:

Italian poet; born at Orvieto in 1607. In 1625, being then at Sienna, he paraphrased in Hebrew terza-rima three "widduyim": Baḥya's, beginning (following the Italian paraphrase in verse of his maternal grandfather, Johanan Judah Alatrini), that of R. Nissim, and an anonymous widdui beginning . He was also the author of three sonnets in Hebrew and Italian, and of a Hebrew dirge consisting of eight strophes of six verses each. All these poems were published in one volume (Venice, 1628).
